that was very nice of your daughter. IT will at least be acouple days less stressful for you. Hope eveything goes well.


even though i am not 100 % i feel a bit better.But when my son woke up this morning it wasn't good. Poor little is so hot and weak. it's slways sad when a little one gets sick.
we were going to go for your special greek dinner tonight, but if the boy still isn't keep stuff down then i guess we will be home or the clinic. one more day left of the BF days off--wonder what can happen tomorrow

I'm so sorry about your little one. It's always so heart wrenching when a child is ill. I do hope he will feel better soon and you as well. Stress doesn't make for good health either does it.
Hope tomorrow is a better day.

Many thanks kadesma. Sorry if I keep 'getting it wrong' there's so much to learn, discover and explore here that I keep rushing off in different directions.
Will probably be absent for a while after Wed. as I will be making daily journeys to visit Ian in hospital.
Thanks again.

This is a really teeny tiny vent, but for anyone who has curly hair, they'll get what I'm on about. I have finished the huge supply of frizzease I bought with me to Italy, I have not found it anywhere here yet, and I am DREADING the onset of bad frizz! I have manicly curly/fizzy hair, and I hardly know how I coped before frizzease......al my other products are really easily available, but not the serum! Oh well, some experimentation will ensue I guess!

I'm going out of my mind with stress. A number of issues have been building for a year or so and I haven't been myself lately. I think it's finally getting to me but I don't know how to deal with it. I was on the verge of quitting booze for good but everything kind of came to a head at about the same time recently and I started drinking heavily again, which is not good. I have every reason to be thankful for everything in my life yet a few key issues have gotten me all topsy-turvy. AARGH! I had to get all that off my chest. Feel free to call the nice men in white suits.

DC,
we all have stress, and we all handle it a different way..Me, my gang run for the hills cuz, I've been know to just pick up whatever and give it a heave ho out the first door I find! You say you were about to not drink anymore, that is wonderful, and I know you know this, but drinking on top of the stress only makes it worse. Plus it can add another stress. The stress of having your health go south and having to deal with that day after day..Be kind to yourself, pitch the booze, take a deep breath, come here and chat with us more, do things you enjoy that are stress relievers for you. We want you with us for a long time..Whatever that is bothering you, is not worth ruining your life and health for.

Damp Charcoal those words of kadesma's are spot on. Could you write down a list of things you like to do?
walking
reading
meditating
listening to music
swimming
going to the gymn
coming here
Try to do at least one of them for a period of time every day and let your friends listen to and help you. People are wonderfully caring as a rule

Kadesma, you're absolutely right. I'm trying really hard and I do enjoy exercise and hard work. Csalt, I love doing everything you said but I'm unfamiliar with meditation.

DC, there isn't a man I know who doesn't enjoy working hard, playing hard, but they have a hard time just doing something like reading, watching a movie in the middle of the day, turning off the lawn mower and flying a kite with a child or grandchild. Why? I suppose it's the age old thing..MEN work, woman cook and clean..Men are made to feel somethimes as if they are slackers if they take time to enjoy life..I say phooey to all that, do something for your self for a change..Your life doesn't have to only be about giving,,share it, enjoy it, it only comes once and then it's someone elses turn..Meditation, can be something as simple as sitting on the grass under a tree on a warm day, just musing about something that gave you great pleasure..Like, remember when dad took you to that ballgame,the fun you had, or mom spent the morning with you baking your favorite cookies, your wedding day, your first child, or just gazing about you at what nature has to offer...Keep trying DC, you're strong and young and you can do this!
